Trump’s approval rating falls into the 30s in several polls

On the one hand, this is a heartening development. On the other hand, grossly mishandling a pandemic, threatening to sic the military on your own citizens, and tear-gassing peaceful protesters for a sacrilegious photo op that makes you look like a constipated barn owl should put your approval rating in the low single digits. And it would if not for all the, you know, racists.

A Gallup poll conducted from May 28-June 4 (significantly, after George Floyd’s death and both before and after the assault on Lafayette Square) shows Trump’s approval rating dropping to 39 percent — fully 10 points below his approval rating in May.

Meanwhile, CNN’s poll, which recently sent Trump into a tizzy when it showed him far behind Joe Biden nationally, puts IMPOTUS’ approval rating at a limp 38 percent — down a full 7 points from the network’s May 7-10 poll.

This is great news, but we need to keep working. Because you know how short Americans’ memories are. Trump should have been toast after Charlottesville, but somehow a large percentage of the population continually forgets that he’s a racist. And that likely won’t change unless he shows up at his next rally in an obergruppenführer uniform. (And even that, I suspect, would shave off only a point or two from his poll numbers.)

But we remember he’s a giant shit-dirigible. And we need to remind everyone.

Let’s GOTV and work as hard as we can for Joe.

If you can afford to give to one of the Senatorial races so that we can reverse the Senate majority — please do so! Every little bit helps — even $3.

The only way this might have been good news is if this is October, but obviously it is not. So this is meaningless chatter. Polls mean nothing.

This is June. He can do a lot to hurt us and help him and still have plenty of time to be forgiven. And then start over. And remember he doesn’t change, his supporters don’t change and all we do is get more disgusted.
